PTA Reflections National Art Contest Comes to Grand View!

 
Reflections Art Contest - Look Within
 
REFLECTIONS: It’s all about the Arts: “Look Within”
 

That’s the theme for the 2019-2020 Reflections Art Program which has been bringing the arts to life for more than 10 million students since 1969. And California State PTA and its members, families and kids are on the forefront of this amazing program, which increases community awareness of the importance of arts in education.

 

Reflections encourages students of all ages to:

  • Unleash creative talents and be inspired
  • Express themselves imaginatively in their artwork
  • Experience the fun and joy of making art
  • Tap into critical-thinking skills to create art inspired by the annual theme
  • Receive positive recognition for their original works of art

 

PARTICIPATING IS EASY, EXCITING AND EMPOWERING: 

 

All students attending PTA schools sponsoring the program are invited to participate and submit original artwork in one of six areas:

  • Dance Choreography
  • Literature
  • Photography
  • Film Production
  • Music Composition
  • Visual Arts

Artworks are submitted first to school-level PTAs, where they are first recognized, celebrated and judged by five grade-level divisions, while a non-judged Special Artists division celebrates student artists with special needs.

 

School PTAs then choose a selection of entries to be judged by local PTA units, which are then sent on to councils and then districts for consideration.

 

The final artworks submitted to California State PTA by districts are then considered for Outstanding Interpretation, Awards of Excellence or Awards of Merit.

 

Outstanding Interpretation and Award of Excellence entries then go on to represent California in the final National PTA judging round.

 

Submissions are due Tuesday, October 22, 2019 in the PTA room. 

 

Application Forms available here.
